Behind the Scenes

"Absolutely devastated that today was my last day of a 4-1/2 month sabbatical that literally changed my life and how I look upon it. Don't know if I'm any closer to knowing what the future will hold, but I know I'll cherish the infinite moments I had on this journey. I discovered this charming bakery in one of the train underpasses of East London and it was a deliciously sesame-banana-kouign-amann way to end the trip. #JenYeeEatsEurope #oui #pastry #london #londoneats #londonsweets #OPP #OtherPeoplesPastry #kouignamann #sesame #sesamebanana #vacationisover #yeastbakery @yeastbakery"

"Thank you, @genevievemeli, @debracicot and @tyleratwell1, for inviting me to the pastry challenge. Currently not producing my own desserts, but will share with you some amazing finds on my marathon Paris pastry tour. Stop 7 of 7: Gâteaux Thoumieux. - Phew! Down to my last Paris post and I leave you with the best (although not the best photo)! This was my first time visiting the shop and I was immediately taken by the simplicity of the products in the case. Love the natural colored glazes, clean shapes and careful execution of both the traditional and more contemporary gâteaux. Tried the mini versions of these for max taste testing capacity. #JenYeeEatsEurope #oui #pastry #parispastry #parispastrytour #patisserie #parissweets #7daypastrychallenge #OPP #OtherPeoplesPastry #mangocheesecake #baba #cakedisplay #pastrydisplay #vitrine #gateauxthoumieux @gateauxthoumieux"

Stop 6 of 7: Bontemps. - Of all the places visited, this was the most feminine and adorable shop in Paris. From the wallpaper to the floor tiles to the cake cabinets to the window display, everything is just so cute! Do not miss trying a thick square of their Sicilian lemon cake: dense, lemony-fresh and not too sweet. #JenYeeEatsEurope #oui #pastry #parispastry #parispastrytour #patisserie #parissweets #7daypastrychallenge #OPP #OtherPeoplesPastry #pastrydisplay #windowdisplay #cakedisplay #cuteshop #cutecakes #lemoncake #bontempsparis @bontempsparis"
